I'll be attending an 1850 tournament in a few weeks, thought I would share with people what am bringing.

Autarch – Reaper Launcher, Bike
Autarch – Reaper Launcher, Bike, Power Weapon
Warlock – Singing Spear, Bike

9x Jetbikes – 3 Shuriken Cannons
9x Jetbikes – 3 Shuriken Cannons
6x Jetbikes – 2 Shuriken Cannons
6x Jetbikes – 2 Shuriken Cannons

2x Vyper – Scatter Laser/Shuriken Cannon, Holo Field
2x Vyper - Missile Launcher/Shuriken Cannon, Holo Field
1x Crimson Hunter Exarch

3x Fire Prism – TL Shuriken Catapult, Holo Field

Should be fun :D And the 1500 version didn't do that poorly either

I LOVE reaper launcher Autarchs. I don't see them near enough in lists. They do fantastically against Tau and Marines. It makes me smile that you're running two of them.

Very strong theme to your list, I really approve. The only thing I would personally change is the vyper loadouts. I'd give them all bright lances, but that's just because I've had a HECK of a hard time in 7th popping skimmers. Especially annihilation barges. Necrons seem to be pretty common in tournaments this edition.

Let us know how this goes! I'd really like to see some pics, too! It sounds like it would be good-looking on the table.

Bought 3 Hornets, can't wait till they come in the mail. :D

(Magnetizing Pulse Lasers and Scatter Lasers so I can go 6 Scatters, 3 Scatters and 3 Pulse or just 6 Pulse Lasers)

They'll be replacing all 4 Vypers

Wasn't using Army Builder ;)

The models look fantastic, can't wait to see them alongside the rest

I might pick up another 3 if they work well, giving me 6 for larger games. Or games in which I do not want to use the Crimson Hunter

I'm a fan of the 6 pulse laser build for all lists. Eldar have so much access to the heavy weapons in their codex that you can take scatter lasers pretty much anywhere, but 5 point pulse lasers? That's a gift from Vaul Himself! However since you've already got a hunter and 3 Prisms it might be a bit overkill. Unless you maybe switch out a prism or two for night spinners? ;) I love night spinners. everyone should have a pet night spinner.

Well, with the scatter lasers I get 12 Str 6 Shots...Which would make my Pulse Lasers Twin Linked ;) I really love twin linked weapons

Since you're not running any Farseers I am inclined to agree with you. Given the option though, I'd take a Farseer over mixing my roles in larger point games. Overall the addition of hornets with no further changes will only make your list stronger. I'm really interested in hearing how this list does at the tournament!

Stuck with Vypers (Unless I want to convert them into Hornets)

i prefer hornets with 2 pulse lasers, more expensive but with bs4 4 S8 ap2 shoots hardly tanks hold that :P

I played with 1 once at 500pts and wrecked 3 chimeras and 2 armoured sentinels..

I think both have merit for sure. If you take them with dual pulse lasers maybe see if you can get a farseer to twin link them?

Can you take hornets in squadrons or just units of 1?

This is what I was referring to in my post earlier. Since he doesn't have a farseer, I don't have much of an issue with him taking scatter/pulse laser combos, but given the option I would side with you. Farseer + 12 S8 AP2 shots is gnarly.
